Strongly Recommended


  • Advanced Phonogram Flash Cards
  • Grammar Flash Cards
  • Phonogram Game Tiles
  • Essentials Answer Key
  • Teacher Training Manual (accompanies our free Teacher Training Videos)
  • Uncovering the Logic of English: A Common-Sense Approach to Reading, Spelling, and Literacy
  • Note about Student Workbooks

    The Cursive and Manuscript Workbooks are identical except for the font used in the examples; choose the workbook for the handwriting style your student is learning or already using comfortably. These books do not teach handwriting; if the student requires handwriting instruction, begin with The Rhythm of Handwriting. Wondering which to choose? Learn why we recommend cursive.

    Ordering for Multiple Students?

    You will need one Workbook and one Spelling Journal per student. Simply order your teacher materials and first set of student materials here, and then add additional copies to your cart as needed. If you are teaching more than four students at once, we recommend adding an additional pair of Game Card decks so everyone can play!

    Format Choices

    Essentials books are offered in two formats: printed and PDF.

    • The Teacher's Manual is a casebound, durable hardcover. 612 pages.
    • Workbooks are quality paperback, with perforated pages for easy tear-out. 484 pages.

    The digital PDF format includes two file options: Print and Electronic.

    • The print version is formatted in single pages.
    • The eReader version is formatted in spreads for optimum screen display.

    Many teachers and students have happily used the entire curriculum digitally on a tablet, with no printed books, not even workbooks. Apps such as GoodReader and Adobe Reader allow students to "write" on the workbook pages electronically.

    Printing PDFs- Some customers purchase the PDF version with the intention to print it themselves. They are often shocked to realize how much it costs to print these books at home! The Teacher's Manual is 612 two-color pages. The workbook is 484 pages. Printing on most home printers will cost more than the printed price of either of these books.


    Our PDF format books come with a limited reproduction license. Please read the terms of each license before purchasing.

    Single family license - For use by the members of an immediate family, including parents, children, and grandparents. Homeschool co-ops must purchase one license per family.

    The digital products on this page are licensed for use by the members of one family. To order PDFs licensed for classroom or tutoring center use, click here.
